Chrome: Half of the time, I don't really remember why I left a tab open. I have dozens of tabs meant as references for later, but I'm constantly forgetting their original purpose. With Note Anywhere, you can leave a little reminder for yourself on any page.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.


PicoPad wallet notes ensure you'll always have a pen and paper handy. Each notepad is the size of a few credit cards stacked (width and length is the same, but slightly thicker than a single card) and contains a mini pen and a stack of Post-It notes to scribble your impromptu notes on. While a PicoPad isn't a replacement for a full out notepad or stack of 3x5 cards, it's extremely small and will be with you whenever you have a wallet or purse handy.

Erin from organisation weblog Unclutterer loves taking notes in books, so whenever she checks a book out from the library or borrows a book from a friend, she buys a stack of sheer colour Post-it notes. The notes are see-through, which means that whenever you want to circle a passage or make notes, you can just plop one down on top of the page and make your notes just like you normally would. If you've been reprimanded a time or two for your highlighting and notes-in-the-margin habits, these sheer Post-its look like a perfect compromise.

How to write in books that aren't yours


Post-It notes don't have to be boring, square, and yellow any more: make your own sticky notes with any size and colour paper with the Scotch Restickable Adhesive Glue Stick. Just apply the magic sticky stuff to the back of any piece of paper, and stick and re-stick it anywhere you'd like. Over at the Cool Tools weblog, reader Bill says it helps him GTD:

I use it to make my various Getting Things Done/43 folders items and tasks stay put in my handheld binder. I jot my items and tasks down on variously coloured pieces of paper of whatever size I need, rub the magic stickum on them, and they stay put in my binder until I decide to move them around. My inner child is happy because I get to play with stickers and glue; my inner adult is happy because I can continually and easily refine my GTD system.

Sounds like a good stocking stuffer for the crafty person in your life, too. The Restickable Glue Stick costs more than a regular glue stick, about $1.20 a pop (at Amazon at least).
